I purchased a hyper evo 212 the other day and it just came in the mail today. I installed my new AMD phenom 2 945 quad core @ 3.4 ghz and the hyper evo 212 properly. I booted up my computer and the fan spun for a couple seconds and then stopped. the fan then tried spinning up again for 1 or 2 seconds, and then stopped. It keeps repeating this process. The fan has a four pin connector and my mobo only has a 3 pin. I think that is the problem. Is there any way i can make this work?
I tried bumping up my fan speed in "speedfan" but i dont see a change. Is it possible to just take the fan off my old heatsink, plug it in, and just let it sit on top of my new hyper 212 heat sink and run at 100% all the time (lol, this sounds like a really stupid idea, but will it work?). My cpu temp is 42C while typing this.
Also, my PSU is a corsair 700w and i am using my ACER OEM motherboard that my pc originally came with.

no the fan is definetly plugged in correctly. It might be that the connector for the fan is a 4 pin and the only pins i have available for a fan are three pin, which are the one that my previous oem fan used.
I'm unable to find a feature in bios that allows me to configure fan speed or the power being supplied to the fans. Could it be that the fans 4 pin connector is only connected to the three pins on my mobo. Just started up DayZ and played a bit and the fan started spinning at 1000rpm, but its completely idle when I'm not gaming.
ok thankyou for that clarification. The fan speed seems to be controlled independantly of anything i can do to change it such as AMD overdrive or Speedfan. When on full load and during stress testing the cpu has gotten to 70C max, but does not hover there and is usually around 64C on full load. The fan never exceeds 1100 rpm though. This is all after i've overclocked it to 3.8ghz
